These boggy days don't make us want to venture outdoors much, but there's so much to see even in this weather. DPR Outdoor Recreation will have two environmental education programs for young people this coming weekend that help you find the hidden-in-the-open nature around us. On Saturday, our Urban Wild program will take you on a hunt for what's in your backyard, and there should be a TON of mushrooms, moss, frogs and possibly salamanders at Campus Hills. On Sunday, bring your boots for our Muddy Boots pre-school program at Sandy Creek Park, one of my favorites in Durham. Our theme is "Frogs" (how appropriate is that?), so that'll be a major focus of our day. Then take a walk on the muddy side and explore the frog habitat. More information is below?
